Seyi Makinde

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the election of Oyo state governor Seyi Makinde, of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 9, 2019 gubernatorial election.

In a unanimous ruling, the apex court presided over by Justice Mary Ukaego Peter Odili, declared that Gov. Makinde, actually defeated his closest rival Adbayo Adelabu, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election.

 The judges declared that the Appeal Court carried out a miscarriage of justice in its ruling on the case earlier brought before it.

Meanwhile, the Oyo State Development Advocacy Group (OSDAG), has congratulated the Governor Makinde, for his victory at the Supreme Court.

 OSDAG in a statement by Michael Ogunsina, its spokesperson, recalled that Makinde defeated Adelabu with over 150,000 votes.

According to the group, the people of Oyo are fortunate to have voted for Makinde and stood by him during the journey from the tribunal to the Supreme Court.

 “This mandate was freely given to him and there should not be any dispute in the first place,” the group said while calling on the opposition APC to accept the verdict in good faith.

 The group thanked the Supreme Court for not going in the path capable of setting the state on fire.
